Restoring Health: body, mind and spirit

Endorsement of Restoring Health by Signa Bodishbaugh

Leave a comment

Reading Restoring Health: Body, Mind and Spirit by Ed Hird is a delightful experience of Bible study, history lesson, pep-talk, travelogue, autobiography, and sermon. Paul’s letter to Titus comes alive through Ed’s comparisons of pirates and the characteristics of piracy we tend to bear. As soon as you complete Restoring Health, you will want to jump right into the Bible and re-read Titus with new understanding.

Conlee and Signa Bodishbaugh have been leading The Journey Divine Conversations cover conferences since 1992, in the United States and internationally, including Canada, England, Holland, Germany, Israel, and Rwanda.

In 1972, while living in Fayetteville, AR, they entered into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, who ignited their continuing passion for His ministry of wholeness. Mentored by Leanne Payne, the Bodishbaughs ministered with her in Pastoral Care Ministries conferences in many countries.

Conlee retired as the senior pastor of Christ Anglican Church in Mobile, Alabama, in 2009. Since his retirement, the Bodishbaughs have focused on The Journey ministry and have initiated STEPS, a week-end teaching and ministry experience on various subjects. In 2012 they initiated a 12-week small group study program called “Journey Groups.”  Already successful in several states, “Journey Groups” offers DVD teachings by Conlee and Signa, Leaders’ Guides, and Participants’ Workbooks.

Signa is the author of the devotional book, “The Journey to Wholeness in Christ,”   “Illusions of Intimacy,” and “Divine Conversations.”  All are available at Journeyconferences and by mail order. (See resources).

The Bodishbaughs have been married since 1962, and have three sons and eight grandchildren.  They recently moved from Mobile Bay to Fayetteville, Arkansas.
